So Odey Asset Management isn’t going to be leaving the UK after all.

rtr1uo39CEO David Stewart told me today that the firm, which is planning to open a Swiss office, will “always have operations in the UK”, despite government plans for a 50 percent tax rate on top earners.

Nevertheless, the Sunday Times interview with Crispin Odey reflects the frustration many in the hedge fund industry feel from a combination of higher taxes and what they perceive as the UK’s failure to protect them from tougher EU rules, driven by the French and Germans.
